Web form hosted solution?

    Any advice for setting up a functional employment
    application form for my client. Coding it myself will
    take a lot of my time and would also require setting
    up a server side backend along with security certificate.
    Sound like a lot of work!

    Then I've researched hosted solutions like
    https://www.elbowspace.com/FRHformexample156

    The only pitfall with this type of solution is the web address
    the client sees is the web address of the web form hosting
    company (ELbowspace.com in this case).

    I could try embedding it in an iframe, but that might get messy.

    Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Most hosted forms will show said company website rather than your own.

    Nothing wrong with an iframe, it's like one line of code, not messy at all.

    I love https://www.typeform.com for hosted forms, it is a unique method of data collection.

    You could also try Google forms http s://docs.google.com/forms/

    The more correct solution (the gods only know why the iframe was brought back from obsolescence) is to use the object element. It is more controllable and offers a cascading fail-through.

    I would definitely not use a hosted form for this - you never know what information is being gathered by the form-provider, and I'm assuming that you would demand a lot of personal information from the applicants. There might even be rules regulating how this should be done, depending on where you are.
